snow to talk about in addition to the rain. outside right now, pretty quiet. really nice night. temperature warmer by about ten degrees than they were last night. there is still a snow pack. especially across central and southern new jersey. from any spots still have six inches on ground and it will be kind of a slow melt that's the good news leading up to this rain, kind of melting it a little bit each day but the soil is becoming very saturated because of that. and we are going to see when temperatures warm up and the rain comes in, possibly the threat for some poor drainage minor flooding out there late this week and into the weekend. here's a live look at the palmyra cove nature parking all ice on the delaware river, and things are slowing a little bit better out in the middle of river, all of that will be melting as well. and we're under the influence of this large storm system so there's that cold front, strong front across the northern plains, warm front is helping usher a southwest flow in for us and temperatures rising as we await the arrival of that cold
front so we hit the surge of warm moist air into the region. but also some rain when the front approaches. overnight mainly cloudy, not as cold, 35 is your low. tomorrow, most of the day is dry. mostly cloudy. nice and warm. 51 the daytime high which certainly when you compare it to last week, when we were in the teens, going to feel much better. as we head through day, the clouds stick around not a lot of sunshine with your 51 degrees. by tomorrow about 8:00 or 9:00, the heaviest of the rain will be on and off through the day friday. one batch of heavy rain earlier then possible a little bit of a low in the action friday night, another round of heavy rain and you can see ice north and west heavy snow across great lakes but it will be too warm for us to get in on that snow. so saturday morning starts with rain, maybe ending few flakes in the poconos, this looks like all rain for the vast majority of our area. that's the good news. behind the front temperatures are going to plummet just in
time for the eagles game on saturday. so forecast rain amounts as we head to friday and saturday, some spots as much as two and a half inches of rain when you couple that with the snow melt it could lead to the threat for minor flooding and ponding on the roads possibly even a few rumbles of thunder with this and then temperatures will tumble, we'll be in the 50's around midnight friday into saturday morning behind the front, a 33 degree drop in 24 hours by midnight saturday night 24 and temperatures for the eagles game barely better than freezing. the good news is it won't be raining and it won't be snowing. the bad news is cold but don't look at those 50's saturday pretend they're not even there. that's at midnight. temperatures will be in the 30's, 20's even for the entire of the eagles game and much colder next week, right back to winter with the chance for light snow tuesday. this little spring vacation is a couple days and it's wet and gets cold again
